how the united states may change this influence, address this national security deficiencies him and provide global leadership in an era when the american economy may not be the overwhelming source of power it once was. increasingly, national influence will be determined by whether the countries can contribute to solving global problems or at lease whether they are making themselves indispensable to other nations. china and other developing economies are demanding a greater say in the management of the world economy through the g20 and other mechanisms. china's global leverage has increased as it liberally positioned itself as a creditor nation with more than 20% of the world current account balance surplus. we cannot depend invasively on china investing heavily in the united states government that. some thought must be given to how we work with china and other nations to establish a more sensible global balance that depends less on demand by american consumers. the united states in the g20 also must rethink the role of the international financial institutions that provide crisis

that we have had the highest deficit in the history of the united states, $1. trillion, -- the $1.4 trillion, the pelosi plan comes in weighing at $1 trillion. when we just got unemployment figures back, think about this, the president with an 8.5% unemployment rate pushes upon the congress a $787 billion stimulus bill and now unemployment has gone from 8.5% to 10.2% and in so many other pockets of america it's 14%, 15% and 16%. where are the jobs? why have we taken the focus off the main thing, the economy? why are we going down the track of government takeover of health care? and massive mandates on individuals, doctors and small businesses? just like china. mr. speaker, 1,900 pages, it's ridiculous. the republican alternative, which is not even half, not even 25%, but i'd say maybe 15% in size, weighing in at say maybe a mere $1 -- 150 pages, bring more competition for individuals, association health care plan to let small businesses pool together, expansion of health savings accounts, medical malpractice reform to reduce frivolous lawsuits. this is the republican alternative a

with the united states prior to the war in iraq. the reason we in theory a oppose the war was that we told the bush administration that would blind to that region and we don't underestimate the with them. for you to invade and occupy iraq will be equivalent to pandora's box of evils. you go there and you will unleash evils that we don't understand, all sorts of forest have been unleashed. it's actually run for any country in the world to go and occupy another country, dismantle its government, disbanded government, the spanish police force. and pretend that they know better. you made the decision. you looked to send your troops to iraq and i feel bad for every single human life that was lost in iraq, whether it was iraqi lives or american lives because those young soldiers didn't go there because they wanted to go there. this wasn't a decision taken by the bush administration. not every american situation like the war in iraq. what i'm trying to tell you is this is a controversial issue, but if you try to become part of the lies and forget you are an american and these are iraqis, believe

to the united states as the first state guest under the administration of president barack obama. in this city of great institutions, the petersen institute of special significance for me because on my last tour of duty here as minister for commerce at the embassy in the early 1990's, i relied a great deal on the wisdom and analysis of the petersen institute to make sense of a world that was then caught in tech tonic, political and economic shifts. that was also a time of momentous change in the direction of the indian economy . it was a change that was triggered by the immediate cause of an external payment crisis. but it was in response also to a fundamental reorientation in the mindset that had bun in the 1980's on what it would take to accelerate the economic development of the world's second-most populous nation. inled ya's nearly two decades of economic reforms have taken place in our own unique circumstances of a vibrant democrat creas, unparalleled pluralism and diversity and extraordinary social and economic challenges. they took place at a time when regional political parties were gr

from michigan points out, we do have another document here and that is the united states constitution and i think the most dramatic contrast is when you take speaker pelosi's approach to health care, 20 pounds by the way and i have carried this around to know it is about 20 pounds of paper and you take the u.s. constitution and contrast it to this massive document of 1,990 pages and this is the founding document of our country. we don't need a government takeover of health care, we need to fix the problems that are broke. we don't need to break the things that are great in this country. we need to continue this debate and encourage the american people to stay engaged because the american people want the problems fixed, but they don't want the government that couldn't even run a cash for clunkers program properly to be taking over their health care and interfere in their relationship with their doctor. . mr. broun: frankly if you look at that document, the small one you just dropped down, the constitution of the united states, you won't find any constitutional authority in that documen
